An FBI reporter has marry ISIS sp0okesman and former rapper from Germany.
It is reported the rogue employee, Daniela Greene, 38, had top-secret security clearance when she was asked to work in an “investigative capacity” in January 2014 on the case of a German rapper-turned-ISIS spokesman, Denis Cuspert.
Before Cuspert became a front man for jihadists, he rapped under the name Deso Dogg in Germany. Videos of the one-time musician show him on bloody battlefields and threatening former President Barack Obama.
He later changed his name to Abu Talha al-Almani when he moved to Syria.
His growing influence as an online recruiter for violent jihadists put him on the radar of counter-terrorism authorities on two continents.
After months of tracking Cuspert’s communications, Greene travelled to Syria to marry ISIS, unbeknown to the FBI.
In the weeks after they were wed, reporters said Greene realised her mistake to marry ISIS spokesman and fled back to the US, where she was immediately arrested and agreed to co-operate with authorities.
In an email released in Federal Court documents by reporters, Greene sent emails to an unidentified person in the US showing she was having second thoughts about her decision.
“I was weak and didn’t know how to handle anything anymore,” she wrote on July 8. “I really made a mess of things this time.”
On the following day, she wrote: “I am gone and I can’t come back. I wouldn’t even know how to make it through, if I tried to come back. I am in a very harsh environment and I don’t know how long I will last here, but it doesn’t matter, it’s all a little too late …”
She pleaded guilty to making false statements involving international terrorism and was sentenced to two years in federal prison. She was released last summer.
Other court documents showed Greene lied to FBI employers about where she was going, claiming she was visiting her parents in Munich, Germany, and tipped off her new husband about the investigation.
